The Sky Today,
February 22

At 1:39 a.m.: The moon is square Jupiter

In the pre-dawn hours, the Leo moon squares off with Jupiter in Taurus, inclining us to excess. We risk making potentially unwise moves in our desire for attention or acclaim. Being a try-hard is rarely a good look. Showy behavior might even tarnish our reputation! As many of us will be asleep at this hour, we may experience grandiose dreams in which we attain everything we believe we “deserve” yet lack in waking life. We could dream of winning the lotto, only to be disappointed come the morning. This aspect will be the dominant lunar transit for most of the day, so lead with optimism, not blind naivete. 

At 3:17 p.m.: The moon is trine Chiron

Mid-afternoon, the moon will trine Chiron in Aries, helping us to confront insecurities. While the moon-Jupiter square provoked some flamboyant behavior, it also allowed us to recognize that the past has passed, and living in the now is what counts. This attitude is essential during the moon-Chiron trine, where we can reframe past failures in light of current victories. Perhaps we’ve experienced disappointment. Perhaps we’ve previously fallen on hard times. But we’ve also been blessed with certain potent opportunities. Place more emphasis on the good than the bad. Look at how far you’ve come! After all, we intend to be the hero in our own story, and what good does a rise to the top follow a hero’s tale without a fall from grace?
